Stefaan Vervoort (born 1986) is a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Art History, Musicology and Theatre Studies, Ghent University. He holds a BA and MA in Architectural Engineering (Ghent University) and an MPhil in Visual Arts, Media, and Architecture (VU University, Amsterdam). He has worked as an assistant and researcher at the Department of Architecture and Urban Planning, Ghent University, where, in 2020, he defended his Ph.D. titled "Models Beyond Sculpture: Architectural Objects in the Visual Arts in New York and Düsseldorf, 1966-1984." His research focuses on the exchange between postwar art and architecture, and on postwar sculpture in relation to technology in Belgium. He previously lectured on modern and contemporary art at VU University, Amsterdam, LUCA School of Arts, Ghent and Brussels, and Antwerp University College. A scholar and an art critic, his writings have appeared in art and architecture journals as well as in scholarly books and exhibition catalogues.
My teaching activities aim to involve students in current research projects and exhibition and publication activities where possible. Since 2022 I teach a BA Research Skills module Modern and Contemporary Art on sculptors and galleries in postwar Belgium (in collaboration with Koen Brams). Additionally I guide BA and MA thesisses on subjects related to my research, most notably art-architecture exchanges and sculpture in postwar Belgium.
